Sonatine is the leader of the Brotherhood of Darkness. He later took over the body of Wenders.


Sonatine was an ambitious, greedy Machiavellian with an intense desire to control the world. He was quite arrogant and condescending with a knack for manipulating both mortals and immortals to achieve his ends. His skill was such that both organized crime and the Angelus could fall into his schemes.

Powers & Abilities Edit

Sonatine possessed a small spark of the Darkness's power.

  • Longevity: Sonatine was over 500 years old at the time of his first bodily death. He was present during the Spanish Inquisition.
  • Possession: He could transfer his spirit into the body of another.
  • Illusion Casting: He could create elaborate illusions to manipulate others.
  • Hypnosis: He could compel others to do his will by looking into their eyes. He could channel this power through his medallion to make anyone believe anything he wanted them to.
  • Spell Casting: His immense occult knowledge allowed him the skill to summon the Angelus to him.
    • Spirit Summoning: His skill allowed him the knowledge to summon and bind the Angelus to a host of his choosing. However, the spell was imperfect as the Angelus chose a different host to the one he chose, showing he did not have total mastery of this lore.
